An example of the glass piece guests will create at this alumni experience.

It’s back by popular demand! Join Alumni Relations and the School of Art glass program for our “hot stuff”, hands-on glass workshop. Get an exclusive look at glass-blowing, learn about the historical Glass House (established in 1970), and make your own perfect piece for spring.

Each attendee will work with advanced students from the program to create a unique, one-of-a-kind, colored glass flower. Pieces created by Illinois State students will also be available for purchase.

Two dates are available. Space is limited, with groups beginning every 30 minutes. A time will be assigned when guests register.

When: 5-8 p.m., April 6 or 9 a.m.-4 p.m., April 7
